4.08/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

No date that I could find, just a 3013 number.

A: Pours a very clear golden. Decent sized and fizzy white head. Head sticks around surprisingly well despite initial fizziness. Solid, unbroken walls of lacing. Nice.

S: Grassy up front. Light citrus. A little bready malt.

T: Similar to the nose. Quite grassy up front and throughout. Mild citrus once again. Sweet and bready, almost biscuity malt. Crisp finish.

M: Nice crisp medium body. Carbonation dead on.

O: Surprisingly delicious brew. Simple of course, but great balance, mouthfeel and drinkability. People talk about AALs being perfect lawnmower beers, but this is my style right here along with witbiers and hefes.

4.56/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

This bier is beautiful. Bubbles rise from a clear golden body to reach a frothy white head. Great head retention and lacing.

It smells of wheat, malts, and faint dried grass.

It tastes crisp and clean. Grains, malts, and said grassiness soon part ways to a more bitter finish. Great balance.

The beer feels crisp and clean going down.

Overall, this beer is lovely. All parts work well together.
